#TuesdayThoughts: Mixing it up.

Standard

So I’ve had a change of scenery today. I’m sitting in my parents’ place, waiting for a fridge to be delivered.

Good, good times.

Nothing’s that different but the view, and the furniture, of course. But I’ve got a nice little corner set up and I’m torn between the delivery coming quickly and it taking its time.

Not that I have to clear out, but like the rest of the world, I’ve got Stuff to Do.

Ironically I thought I’d get away from hammering, as there’s hammering at my place, but it turns out they also have hammering.

Long live the hammer.

It’s a beautiful day, though, with big fluffy clouds, and it’s almost as though the weather forgot all about the snow.

Let’s not remind it.

So I’m going to take advantage of my cozy spot to edit, while you go and have the best of Tuesdays.

#MondayThoughts: Monday strikes again!

Standard

I was making coffee–you know I tend to make coffee–and glanced over at the cup while gathering the rest of my breakfast.

It was not coffee colored.

It looked like watery almond milk, which is precisely what it was. No coffee.

But I’d put coffee in the basket. I know I’d put coffee in the basket.

Well, it turns out the top of the basket, the cover where the the water drips through, was on backward.

DARN YOU MONDAY!!

(Clearly that’s Monday’s fault, and not mine.)

It’s a somewhat cloudy day, and I have to tell you, on this November 4, I am having zero no NaNoWriMo regret. I’m OK with taking November off this year. If the mood strikes, I can always do one of the camps.

Besides, I’ve got editing to do. With some coffee. Make sure all your coffee basket liddy thingies go on the right way, and have a fantastic Monday.

#AccountaClub Friday, November 1, 2019

Standard

Well here we are! End of the week and a brand-new month, all in one. It’s been a bit of a strange week, and we have snow on the ground already. When I said winter was on its way, I didn’t mean immediately, but here we are.

Final decision on NaNoWriMo was a no, and an unrepentant one. I just didn’t want the pressure this year; it didn’t sound fun. So I’m striding into November without even the pretense of doing it.

It doesn’t feel bad, I’ll tell you that, which makes me think I made the right decision. Besides, I have a ton of editing ahead.

Speaking of, I’ve made inroads, and while there will be a lot to hammer out, I had a line that made me laugh aloud and feels tonally perfect.

That’s rare.

Workouts were five days, five workouts, and this week we had some fun ones on Daily Burn 365. Zombie Apocalypse on Wednesday. Yesterday everyone was in costume.

So that’s me! How was your week?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Halloween

Standard

It’s ten word photo prompt time! And given it’s Halloween, we’re going lightly spooky, not quite as creepy as last week.

So using the picture above, write a story of ten words. Exactly ten.

Ready? Here’s mine:

Reluctantly transformed, Ariadne fought for balance with only four limbs.

#WednesdayWisdom: Blah it out.

Standard

I’m all kinds of blah today. The weather certainly isn’t helping, it’s rainy and gray and it’s probably going to stay that way until it snows, which may be sooner rather than later.

I’ve had zero coffee so far, which is probably contributing to the blahness of it all. Nothing like coffee to get that blah on its blah-y way.

I had a blah night’s sleep too, so that could be another wrench in the old, hmm, something funnier than “works.”

See what I mean?

Definitely blah.

So when blah, I propose you be the most blah you can be.

Extremes are the enemies of blah. Or so the theory goes. We’ll see.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: Marshmallow Fluff-Based Lifestyle.

Standard

Not that I’m living one. But I’m definitely considering a marshmallow fluff way of life.

In all honesty, I considered adding some to my coffee this morning. Not sure if it would work, but I’m kind of willing to give it a shot.

It’s good, that’s all I’m saying, and much easier to make than you might think.

What is this, a cooking blog?! Very food-obsessed this morning. Although I guess my rambling is my rambling. Today it’s floating in fluff.

It’s gray again and I’ve heard we’re supposed to get snow this week. I guess it’s that time, but I’m not ready. That won’t change the weather, though.

It’s great for cozying up with a manuscript to edit, and that’s what’s ahead of me. Have a fantastic Tuesday.

#MondayThoughts: Right round, baby, right round.

Standard

It’s sunny, but the leaves are hitting the ground. I ordered some additional bad-weather boots and I’m preparing myself.

Winter is coming.

It always does. Meanwhile, this year, the very year I’d swear only just started, is breezing by. Breezing is the wrong word.

It’s squealing by like a rusty merry-go-round with crumbling, reluctant gears. But it still moves faster than you think it should.

I’m leaning toward no NaNoWriMo this time, the idea of greeting November without the pressure sounds much better to me, more enticing than the fun of getting it done.

But we’re not at November yet. Almost.

But not yet.

I’ve miles and miles of editing to go, as I’m only taking my first run though, so I should get to that. Have a marvelous Monday.
